The Nordman Fir originates from the Caucus Mountain range in Eastern Europe. The mountains divide Turkey and Georgia and there they grow to fully mature trees up to 12 - 15 meters high.
The seed is collected from specific areas where the trees are of particularly good form, it is then sown in specialist tree nurseries where they are germinated and grown into seedlings. Once the seedlings are strong enough, the plants are dug up and replanted in our Christmas tree fields. Great care is taken to select only the strongest seedlings so we grow the very best Christmas trees. It takes at least 6 years before we can start harvesting the trees. A good 2-meter tree can take 8 years to be ready.
